Announcement of the auction No. 83. Grositsky, Yakovlev, Yankilevsky, Shulzhenko, Nesterova, Zverev, Mikhnov-Voitenko and others. August 4–10, 2021

Andrey Grositsky was an artist in the orbit of unofficial art. He was called the “poet of things”. For Grositsky, not only aesthetics was important, but also the spirit of the object. The metaphysics of the object world remained his field of research throughout his life. He transformed shovels, meat grinders, rusty latches into semi-abstract portraits of things of stunning beauty and depth. Grositsky was lucky to live to be recognized. Nowadays, he can certainly be called a favorite of collectors.

Announcement of the auction No. 56. Krasnopevtsev, Nemukhin, Shulzhenko, Provotorov, Burliuk, Mikhnov-Voitenko, Rabin and others. January 27 — February 2, 2021

Before us is Krasnopevtsev. Fabulous beauty. Rare in plot, infrequent in color, large and expensive.

This is the most valuable period of the master of metaphysical still life. An indisputable masterpiece.

Announcement of the auction No. 42. Mikhnov-Voitenko, Voloshin, Rabin, Glazunov, Nemukhin, Sokolov, Udaltsova and others. October 7–13, 2020

Mikhnov-Voitenko is a Leningrad nonconformist artist, an outstanding abstract expressionist. He worked as a turner, studied at the Pedagogical Institute of Foreign Languages, then at the Theater Institute at the staging department. Then he worked at an art plant, made custom decorative panels and signs. He entered the history of art with the works made “for the table”. Art historians believe that in individual creative discoveries Mikhnov-Voitenko was the first in the world, ahead of the Americans and Europeans. It is no coincidence that collectors hunt for his trademark “tubes” and for paintings of the “spontaneous method”. And one of the masterpieces is in front of us.
